statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

It's great in it's melancholic way.... I so do love your palette. :-)

I have had one of those moments for sure. This is what I see when I look at this: the house on the left has roots streching to the earth, like life. The house on the right has roots streching to the sky, like death. Not sure if that is what your idea was but I love it either way. Amazing!

Ps. It's snowy here too, good thing ;)

your blog is really great.
i'll be following.

I will have to try it. Funny how it's named that.

Eva said...

I e-mailed you regarding your comment on my blog.

Eva said...

I just resent it. I'm not sure what is going on with my e-mail. Yours isn't the only one eaten recently.
